05:55:25 <CraigC> is DaveM headed to the park, also?
05:55:48 <Joe> I think not
05:57:16 <LindaG> I dont know how you do it, I was exhausted after 2 shifts yesterday
05:58:50 <Joe> I am half dead most of the time so I don't notice :)
05:59:10 <LindaG> 😋
05:59:18 <CraigC> half alive is good, though
05:59:45 <Joe> Yes I like that part :)
05:59:56 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
06:02:33 <Joe> Soon we will be starring at OF I hope Grand does not erupt early
06:02:54 <Joe> staring *
06:04:06 <ynpvisitor30> What's with OF seismo?
06:22:41 <Joe> OF
06:30:58 <ChrisO> doggies :)

06:51:44 <Joe> I like this view, can cathh Arurum, like you did yesterday
06:51:54 <Joe> catch*
06:52:28 <Joe> Spelling Aurum is wrong
06:52:31 <CraigC> yeah, good view, see Dome on static
06:53:18 <Joe> after daisy I will switch to that view
06:59:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> Morning. Sounds like SB could go any time.
06:59:58 <CraigC> hey Graham, I was going to guess sometime tonight
07:00:51 <Joe> nice for SB not so nice for people traveling or preparing to go to the park
07:00:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> Yeah yhat was my forecast. Efore. Zounds like it might go earlier as yesterday was good
07:01:42 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, I just read CB's last report.... a H***Sh** minor last night
07:01:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> At this ppont there are people coming a d going, so some will get lucky and others not
07:02:00 <Joe> Craig, jump in the jeep and do a walkup
07:02:06 <CraigC> LOL
07:02:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> The longer it waits now the more chance mem day visitors will see it
07:02:51 <CraigC> today and Monday and Tuesday are free dump days here in North Ogden, I am hauling my flatbed over several times getting rid of large junk items
07:03:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> That sounds like fun Craig
07:03:41 <CraigC> ughhh. still have a 32 inch tube TV
07:06:16 <Joe> forget the free dump, head for SB
07:06:25 <Joe> Daisy
07:06:35 <CraigC> :daisy:
07:09:58 <CraigC> I hope SB holds out until tonight or tomorrow, then maybe it will be good for Friday
07:10:43 <CraigC> but yet, sub-5-day intervals would be cool
07:21:18 <CraigC> LC
07:22:29 <CraigC> NG hasn't been logged since May 5th
07:23:01 <Joe> I just tried mobile viewer and one shot focus, neat
07:23:28 <CraigC> huge improvement, glad they resolved that
07:24:39 <CraigC> AB?
07:24:47 <Joe> yes
07:25:49 <CraigC> both
07:26:24 <Joe> yes
07:27:13 <CraigC> Joe, you going to log them?
07:27:58 <Joe> how about you
07:28:06 <CraigC> ok
07:30:07 <CraigC> without zoom being able to focus, I doubt I could have seen the water on AL
07:32:10 <Joe> Yes I have to get used to the mobile viewer too many clicks to get there but end result is nice
07:46:45 <CraigC> little early
07:46:54 <CraigC> good catch, Joe
07:52:01 <Joe> according to static that may have been the start minute
07:52:23 <Joe> LC again
07:53:12 <Joe> four clicks to get there
08:01:26 <Joe> was taking screen shots for a panorama
08:04:05 <lc> morning
08:04:31 <Cooper> goog morning lc
08:05:23 <lc> might be a good day to go to Norris.
08:05:57 <Cooper> no joke
08:13:54 <Joe1> Big A
08:19:42 <Cooper> come on marmot cave

08:26:45 <Cooper> nice, love SB
08:37:07 <ynpvisitor39> BH looks happy
08:38:31 <Joe> Hi Kevin
08:40:34 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
08:48:44 <Cooper> lion looks like its gonna go, in the next hour
08:49:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Hey Craig, you think this keeps that Big Boy crew busy? https://www.railpictures.net/photo/697351/
08:54:53 <Joe> LC
08:57:12 <Cooper> is either lioness/big cub erupting to about 6 inches in the back?
08:58:05 <Joe> Little Cub was
08:58:53 <Cooper> Argg, messed up my lion group again
08:59:49 <Cooper> looks like we migth miss daisy
08:59:54 <Cooper> might*
09:02:43 <Joe> Daisy might be missed oF window about same time
09:04:07 <Joe> hang on to your seat I'll be swinging back and forth in a bit
09:04:17 <Joe> Bulger
09:27:46 <Joe> Daisy
09:29:49 <Joe> Aurum in basin, can't watch them all
09:31:54 <Joe> OF
09:32:20 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, that picture gives me anxiety.... I can't even remember how to use remotes to my AV system
09:33:04 <Teri> gm all
09:33:07 <Kevin L™🌵> I would hate to turn the wrong one.
09:33:12 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
09:33:43 <CraigC> "turn the red one to the left"
09:33:47 <Teri> we need to send Canon the Pokemon motto for a multi-cam system upgrade: "gotta catch 'em all", lol
09:34:21 <Teri> interested OF this am
09:34:32 <Teri> interesting*
09:34:58 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, does the Big Boy ever travel down the old OF road? I see a knob for "Atomizer"
09:35:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Must be a different atomizer!
09:36:19 <Joe> Teri, did you get dizzy ?
09:36:40 <Teri> no, missed the moving cam, just caught OF, tks
09:36:50 <CraigC> There isn't one labeled "Giantess"... that might explain why it hasn't been turned on for a while.
09:36:51 <Teri> sounds like SB might go today from yesterday's notes
09:37:45 <CraigC> Teri, you referring to the "Holy Sh**" minor? :)
09:39:50 <Teri> sounds like intensifying minor play in general; already more than what I saw the day before the 9/24 eruption; weak minor play on 9/23, nothing like yesterday's reports
09:42:46 <CraigC> the minor play I watched up until a few hours before eruption on 5/13 was way more active and intense than the time we sat at SB a year ago, 5/19/18, and missed it by a few hours
09:42:53 <Teri> would be cool to see SB drop a 4 day interval
09:43:24 <Teri> sometimes, no clue
09:45:14 <CraigC> if it goes today, then it may go again right before I get back up there
09:48:19 <Teri> by 9pm it was dark (despite the almost full moon) and cold; SB went at 0518 the next am; I got there around 0645
09:49:42 <Teri> it started post-eruption jetting to 100ft around 0930, that was cool!; 2x the height of 9/23 minors
09:51:34 <Teri> Craig - 5 day intervals most of Sept
09:53:35 <CraigC> I hope people get to experience it whenever it goes
09:53:47 <Teri> correction, I got there around 0730, my camera date stamp was PDT not MDT
09:54:13 <Teri> that's when I met Betty and her brother
09:54:59 <Teri> water phase, the Holy Grail for us (or one of)
10:14:49 <Betty> morning all
10:15:08 <Betty> hey, I can read my name :-)
10:15:09 <Joe> Hi Betty
10:15:30 <Betty> hi Joe, Teri and CraigC
10:17:35 <Joe> OT
10:32:31 <LindaG> This is happening right now https://youtu.be/RZWzyQuFxgE
10:32:51 <LindaG> Elkfest elk antler auction
10:34:28 <LindaG> Uh oh down
10:34:32 <LindaG> Up
10:40:50 <Joe> verside
10:41:03 <Joe> Riverside
10:52:29 <CraigC> hey Betty
10:52:49 <CraigC> 2 loads to the dump, I can relax now for a bit
10:53:22 <Joe> Take a relaxing drive to SB :)
10:53:33 <CraigC> hahaha
10:54:20 <CraigC> nothing relaxing about driving through Idahp and all the farmers that park out in the left lane going slower than hell
10:55:35 <Joe> They gotta see if their potatoes are growing from the road:)
10:55:45 <CraigC> ;)
10:57:30 <Joe> OF early
10:58:31 <Joe> I guess not 2 min into GT window
11:02:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> Back ...did i miss anything
11:03:15 <Joe> No just a few geysers
11:03:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> Not sure anyone signed up to take 1600 to 1830 or so tonight
11:03:40 <Betty> yay, 3 month today to go
11:04:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> :thumbsup:
11:04:10 <Joe> Are you doing 13-1600 ?
11:04:39 <Betty> time for dinner, bbl
11:04:52 <Joe> .
11:04:56 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, are the Giant notes of any significance for positive change towards activity?
11:04:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> Yes, will leave just before the end, going to dinner. Can take it when i get home
11:05:53 <Joe> If I'm awake I'll cover 16-1830
11:06:53 <Joe> I've been on cam since very early am
11:08:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> Thanks. I dont think that the notes indicate Giant is improving. Mike has watched Giant fkr many years, probably just documenting what he is seeing. Prpbably not going to get much attention unless theres a hot period observed, none reported since opening
11:09:15 <LindaG> Joe, want me to do grahams shift tonight?
11:09:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> Maybe someone else will be on and can take it Joe but we are getting into the tough time with all the vacations
11:09:43 <Joe> Yes if you can :)
11:09:59 <LindaG> I will take it
11:10:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> I saw rhe request for Thu evening coverage but i will be packing for my trip....could watch a bit but hard to commit
11:10:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> Thanks Linda
11:10:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> Then Mem Day we have a lot out
11:10:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> That whole week
11:10:55 <Joe> thanks Linda I'll be able to rest up for late night and tomorrow
11:11:04 <LindaG> You just cant go
11:12:44 <Joe> I am only committing Day by day, But expect to cover most shifts
11:13:08 <LindaG> That's what I've been doing
11:14:07 <Joe> I don't want to make promises that I cant keep :)
11:14:37 <LindaG> E t few weeks will be I teresting
11:14:44 <LindaG> Yikes
11:15:00 <LindaG> Next few weeks will be interesting
11:17:56 <Joe> I love these big money weeks :)
11:18:23 <Joe> Oh!!..wait...We are not paid:)
11:19:02 <ynpvisitor27> What about the adoration of gazers throughout the world?
11:19:52 <Joe> 27.. that will have to do :)
11:20:30 <ynpvisitor27> I can't promise groupies, though.
11:20:41 <Joe> :)
11:21:51 <LindaG> Hehe
11:22:51 <LindaG> Oh no I promised my husband I was getting triple time
11:23:59 <Joe> When he askes 'where is the money?' tell him the checks in the mail
11:24:12 <Joe> asks *
11:27:21 <ynpvisitor1> Triple times zero is zero so technically you told the truth!
11:28:19 <Joe> there you go...camops dont lie :)
11:30:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> We will be pleased to see any overnight times too, first thing I do is check GT
11:30:57 <Joe> I'll do my best if I can see
11:31:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> Nice, steve logged some ghg5
11:31:58 <Joe> DaveM has been doing nights also
11:32:00 <ynpvisitor1> Longer Grand intervals...
11:32:16 <ynpvisitor1> One over 6 hours
11:32:23 <LindaG> Joe want me to take 1600-18:30 to tomorrow also?
11:33:08 <Joe> Is Graham gone tomorrow also
11:33:43 <ynpvisitor1> Is Graham gone today?
11:34:08 <LindaG> I think Dave took Kent's stuff
11:34:17 <Joe> tomorrorrowc is Kent 17 todark
11:34:17 <LindaG> I'll look
11:34:27 <ynpvisitor1> Poor Mike Keller, trying to breathe life into Giant!
11:35:22 <Joe> I'll be on tomorrow until 1700, and may not be able to do more
11:35:42 <ynpvisitor1> Kent is a cam op?
11:35:52 <LindaG> Joe, Kent is gone on 26th so he'll be here tomorrow
11:35:57 <Joe> yes

11:42:42 <CraigC> Steph, we had some incredible views of griz; https://imgur.com/YuQRiM3
11:43:13 <Steph> CraigC, yes! I think I saw your pics on FB!
11:43:21 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
11:43:40 <CraigC> that was the highlight
11:43:43 <Joe> think I'll stay wide miss less geysers that way
11:44:17 <Joe> Got Daisy to BH now
11:45:09 <Joe> and flys
11:49:09 <Joe> Daisy
11:52:37 <Joe> Grand is at 5h 22 min now
12:08:28 <ynpvisitor1> Where is Topsoil Spring?
12:12:49 <ynpvisitor43> Just past grand towards oblong
12:13:58 <Joe> Grand
12:15:25 <LindaG> Yay
12:15:43 <Joe> Bulger
12:16:54 <LindaG> Six GT entries to make 1000!
12:17:56 <Joe> There is a pile of people at Grand
12:18:10 <LindaG> Yes
12:20:23 <ynpvisitor1> I thought the focus issue was fixed?
12:22:07 <Joe> it is if you use the mibile viewer
12:22:47 <Joe> see much better
12:24:44 <Joe> done
12:24:58 <Steph> The wind was going the right way for all those lucky people!
12:25:47 <LindaG> Steph, hi
12:25:54 <Steph> LindaG, HI!!
12:26:29 <Joe> OF indy full :)
12:27:27 <ynpvisitor1> Wonder if Grand had a third burst?
12:27:35 <LindaG> 😊
12:28:06 <Joe> actually there is room for more
12:28:35 <LindaG> July will be SRO
12:28:54 <ynpvisitor1> If they ever finish the bw
12:29:06 <Joe> There were a bunch of posts one should update
12:42:40 <Joe> OF
12:51:30 <ynpvisitor79> lion
13:01:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> gotto Fountain started
13:03:13 <ynpvisitor34> What does that mean, grotto is next?
13:03:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> should be
13:10:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> grotto?
13:10:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> more steam there now
13:19:17 <ynpvisitor21> no Grotto, and barely a Grotto Fountain from the sounds of Mike's comment
13:19:28 <ynpvisitor21> I wonder why Mike never goes to Steamboat?
13:19:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah
13:20:14 <Kevin L™🌵> He is probably mostly working right now.
13:20:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> i figure he has some work meetings or something at OF
13:20:53 <ynpvisitor21> maybe has work at OF
13:21:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe GF will get going with Grotto next cycle
13:21:12 <Kevin L™🌵> He is in charge of the lodging.
13:21:19 <ynpvisitor21> wondering if SB will back down or erupt today?
13:21:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> he is incharge of everything Xanterra does
13:21:40 <ynpvisitor21> too bad the primary Grand entry is one without the codes
13:21:53 <ynpvisitor21> he gets to live in the big house
13:22:47 <ynpvisitor21> drat, cam is down
13:22:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> 1 has duration, 2 have codes
13:23:05 <ynpvisitor21> primary does not have codes
13:23:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> others do not have duration
13:23:25 <ynpvisitor21> nice to see burst counts when checking last 20
13:23:50 <ynpvisitor21> I prefer codes to duration I guess
13:24:00 <ynpvisitor21> I also prefer cam to work
13:24:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> cam is working
13:24:21 <Steph> Well, I'm off to shop for our trip up on Wednesday! Hope to see some of you guys. If I get really ambitious, I'll make some of my delicious caramels to pass around!
13:24:22 <ynpvisitor21> Steve is back on the hill, it's his last day in park
13:24:52 <ynpvisitor21> mine said down, now it is back up
13:31:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> turban and vent
13:31:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> ?
13:36:47 <LindaGt> Steph, bye
13:37:45 <LindaGt> That's an interesting angle
13:57:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> lion
14:01:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> another GF big boil
14:01:55 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon all
14:02:06 <CraigC> hey Jarno
14:02:20 <ynpvisitor999®> so those Grotto Fountain plays aren't considered eruptions?
14:03:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> its always hard to call a start since the big boild happen periodically and then one of them grows until its called an eruptin
14:03:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> i usually note a tme and then wait to see if it really grows before i call it
14:04:47 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks :)
14:05:10 <ynpvisitor999®> so this is a Central Vents delay?
14:05:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think so
14:06:45 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, will you look at this around 1833 and tell me if you think Twilight erupted; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROfqiierASM
14:09:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think its just steaming heavily
14:09:59 <CraigC> ok, thanks
14:10:23 <CraigC> I had never noticed steam like that before from that location
14:10:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
14:14:53 <Cooper> any improvement on BH
14:24:18 <CraigC> one of the longer durations of preplay on OF
14:27:27 <CraigC> OF
14:27:34 <CraigC> boom
14:32:36 <ynpvisitor999®> splash splash splash
14:34:25 <ynpvisitor999®> I think it's about time for Grotto to try again
14:34:31 <Cooper> SOME STEAMERS, BUT NO BUBBLERS
14:34:47 <Cooper> Sorry for the caps
14:35:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats a bubbler
14:35:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> west bubbler ie
14:35:35 <CraigC> bubbler
14:35:41 <Cooper> oh nevermind just could not see it well enought
14:35:55 <Cooper> ETA 30 minutes hopefully>(
14:36:02 <CraigC> Cooper, it wasn't bubbling when you commented
14:36:06 <Cooper> all bubblers
14:36:15 <Cooper> oh your right]
14:36:34 <Cooper> oops
14:36:41 <CraigC> I saw the steam too and was squinting to try and see any bubbling
14:38:09 <ynpvisitor999®> Grotto Fountain 1433
14:38:20 <ynpvisitor999®> for real this time it seems
14:39:21 <CraigC> sprinkler
14:39:33 <CraigC> even though I don;t ever enter them anymore
14:39:44 <ynpvisitor70> What is the little bubbler near beehive?
14:39:55 <Cooper> west bubbler
14:40:16 <ynpvisitor70> Does it mean anything?
14:40:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> no
14:41:06 <ynpvisitor70> Thanks
14:41:11 <Cooper> It can be used to say that you might want to sit down and wait for BH
14:42:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> it cn have a series of eruptions, nt sure how many hours they can last
14:42:24 <ynpvisitor999®> they can start playing a few hours before an eruption or not at all. I recall those bubblers commonly showing up on longer intervals, but rarely on the shorter ones
14:42:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> it can also erupt after BH
14:42:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> W Bubbler that is
14:43:07 <Cooper> it is always hard to tell when BH will go, until BHI
14:43:17 <Cooper> and even then sometimes
14:43:29 <ynpvisitor70> Have there been any signs of activity relevant to Giant?
14:43:40 <Cooper> not realy
14:44:13 <ynpvisitor70> I take it Beehive is irregular this year
14:44:29 <Cooper> seems like it
14:44:29 <ynpvisitor999®> so this large steam column what seems to be behind the Giant platform is from Grotto Fountain?
14:45:45 <ynpvisitor999®> BHI 143
14:45:48 <ynpvisitor999®> 1443*
14:45:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes, steam from the left a bit is Grotto trying to start
14:45:57 <ynpvisitor999®> ..
14:45:58 <ynpvisitor999®> .
14:45:59 <ynpvisitor999®> .
14:45:59 <CraigC> nice
14:46:00 <ynpvisitor999®> .
14:46:01 <ynpvisitor999®> .
14:47:21 <Cooper> :bee: indicator YAY
14:47:23 <ynpvisitor999®> hm, no Grotto start this time round from the cam. Hope we can see Rocket though if it goes with this Grotto
14:47:23 <CraigC> anyone send out the text?
14:47:30 <LindaGt> Thx for text
14:47:40 <ynpvisitor999®> SGF 1443
14:47:41 <CraigC> wb Linda
14:47:50 <LindaGt> CraigC, hi
14:48:04 <Cooper> hello Linda
14:48:12 <LindaGt> Cooper, hi
14:48:34 <CraigC> hey Lori
14:48:50 <Cooper> hi Lori
14:48:57 <LindaGt> Hi lori
14:49:08 <Lori S> Hi Craig, Cooper, Linda
14:49:16 <ynpvisitor31> Lori, why aren't you at SB? It's your day off right?
14:49:17 <Lori S> Thx for txt
14:49:21 <CraigC> I'm glad I met Steve E while I was there, he's a really pleasant dude, he spent some time with my mom and I on GH sharing info
14:49:40 <ynpvisitor31> I call him the basin docent
14:50:11 <ynpvisitor999®> Grotto 1447
14:50:16 <Lori S> 31, won't go till tomorrow ;)
14:50:30 <LindaGt> They are lining up to get wet
14:50:36 <Cooper> GT finally predicted BH somewhat right!
14:50:37 <ynpvisitor31> well the way things sound, you may be seeing steam phase
14:50:41 <ynpvisitor31> time will tell...
14:50:55 <ynpvisitor999®> Yesterday it sounded like it was near-primed, if not primed already
14:51:21 <ynpvisitor31> late night post that cb posted early this morning sounded like she was shocked it was so far along
14:51:22 <Cooper> :(:( No Body wants to try and get a "beehive shower"
14:51:32 <ynpvisitor999®> BH's predicted interval has been changed yesterday, Cooper
14:51:40 <Cooper> true
14:51:43 <CraigC> I moved the YNM panel up next to this so I could watch it today... I thnk it could go anytime
14:52:07 <ynpvisitor31> I am guessing it will be overnight, though I am hoping I am wrong
14:52:07 <Cooper> whats the YNM panel?
14:52:22 <ynpvisitor31> seismo traces Cooper
14:52:28 <Cooper> oh thx
14:52:42 <CraigC> the "Quake Map" on this page, choose YNM, it is for Norris/SB
14:53:01 <ynpvisitor999®> if you click on 'YNP Seismic Monitors', you get a list of a couple of seismos
14:53:21 <ynpvisitor999®> the one you want for Steamboat, is Norris Museum, aka YNM
14:53:39 <Lori S> Has Cistern dropped from overflow yet?
14:53:50 <ynpvisitor31> Steve waved to us!
14:54:22 <ynpvisitor31> Cistern wasn't mentioned yet I am guessing YES
14:54:38 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe Cistern dropped overnight
14:55:03 <ynpvisitor31> or yesterday afternoon. It doesn't really drop, the overflow just goes to a trickle
14:55:19 <ynpvisitor31> energy shift
14:55:50 <CraigC> 31 ryan or micah?
14:56:30 <ynpvisitor999®> decent Indicator length
14:57:05 <ynpvisitor31> I don't think wind will take it across bw today
14:57:46 <Lori S> Based on CB's post yesterday at lunch, I'd say 7:30 tonight ish
14:57:53 <ynpvisitor999®> good to see those three were held back by someone. I bet they don't want to miss it
14:58:05 <ynpvisitor31> what about her post from 2000?
14:58:51 <ynpvisitor31> not sure what all her abbreviations meant though
14:58:53 <ynpvisitor999®> Nothing mentioning Cistern on the 2000 SB post
15:00:04 <ynpvisitor999®> CNVVSVH I think means 'Converted; North Vent Vertical; South Vent '
15:00:22 <ynpvisitor999®> not sure what the H means, maybe horizontal? :P
15:00:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Concerted*
15:00:36 <Lori S> Based on the last 3, Cistern needs to drop a tad and SB needs to pause for 30 minutes to a day. :)
15:00:46 <LindaGt> Long indy
15:00:59 <ynpvisitor31> we will soon find out Lori
15:01:08 <ynpvisitor999®> actually, maybe the H means 'High'
15:01:22 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
15:01:24 <CraigC> :bee::bee::bee:
15:01:30 <Lori S> Minors need to pause, I mean. But it IS SB, so I prob will miss it
15:01:31 <LindaGt> Yay
15:01:36 <ynpvisitor999®> explosive start
15:01:42 <Cooper> :bee::bee:
15:01:51 <ynpvisitor31> maybe not.
15:02:12 <ynpvisitor999®> nice curtain
15:02:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> we have no reports, so SB could goany time
15:02:32 <LindaGt> Beautiful
15:02:34 <ynpvisitor31> BH looks smaller on this cam
15:02:59 <ynpvisitor68> yay, just in time :-)
15:03:23 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
15:03:28 <CraigC> nope, you got here after the start, it doesn't count ;)
15:03:32 <LindaGt> Yay Betty's here
15:03:34 <Cooper> hello betty
15:03:43 <ynpvisitor31> maybe she is on delay
15:03:59 <Betty> bah, CraigC
15:04:04 <CraigC> LOL
15:04:07 <CraigC> Hi Betty
15:04:12 <ynpvisitor31> still waiting to see a BH/Aurum dual

15:08:41 <Cooper> im off for a bit to play a game with my family
15:08:43 <Kevin L™🌵> I was watching dinner rolls in the oven.
15:08:45 <Cooper> goodbye
15:08:57 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, have the rolls erupted yet?
15:09:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Bye /cooper
15:09:15 <Kevin L™🌵> They puffed up really nice.

15:18:52 <CraigC> can we widen to Lion
15:19:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> 1h21 .. gues its possible
15:19:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> looked like it had enough raws already tho
15:20:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> fitting Lion in makes for a wide view
15:21:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> i see we still have reserved bus parking in the lot
15:22:05 <CraigC> the day it was raining hard we parked where the bus is, but angled to the north east
15:27:06 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, you think Lion is a no-go?
15:31:20 <CraigC> lots of people at grand, it went just over 3 hours ago
15:32:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe a ranger walk
15:32:20 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
15:36:27 <CraigC> bulger
15:39:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> its a major
15:39:27 <LindaGt> So I'm back, anytime

15:42:46 <Betty> is that only Grotto? looks so big
15:42:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> then you just need another 26,000 to catch up

15:44:53 <LindaGt> Betty, 👍
15:45:13 <Betty> not too bad for over the pond
15:45:31 <LindaGt> For sure!
15:46:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> i have to get something to eat ... bbl .... thanks Linda
15:46:26 <LindaGt> Bye
15:46:26 <Kevin L™🌵> BUT I have the 1,000,000!
15:46:39 <Betty> enjoy
15:46:50 <Betty> yes, Kevin is the winner
15:47:05 <LindaGt> I have cam
15:47:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> it will take a while to get to 2M
15:47:13 <Betty> did you get flowers from GT?
15:47:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Funny thing is I was so busy I didn't even realize it!
15:47:20 <ynpvisitor999®> I got entry 999999...
15:47:33 <LindaGt> One mil? Woweee!
15:47:38 <Betty> double 999
15:47:44 <Kevin L™🌵> That is fitting!!
15:47:55 <ynpvisitor999®> didn't think about that when that happened
15:47:59 <ynpvisitor999®> fun coincidence
15:48:25 <ynpvisitor999®> Joe has entry 1 000 001
15:48:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Gt has sure been awesome. Don't know what we did without it!
15:49:13 <ynpvisitor999®> 999 999, 1 000 000 and 1 000 001 were actually for the same geyser - Daisy
15:49:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Fresh cinnamon rolls just came out of the oven. Be another 30m before I can frost them. Smell awesome!
15:49:30 <CraigC> how long age were those reached?
15:49:47 <ynpvisitor999®> 26 October 2017
15:50:09 <CraigC> when was entry #1?
15:50:32 <ynpvisitor999®> probably a test entry before GT went live, as that one has been deleted
15:50:42 <LindaGt> So maybe getting 1k tonight isnt that big of a deal lol
15:50:52 <ynpvisitor999®> somewhere around 13 September 2011, that's for sure I recon
15:52:14 <CraigC> LindaGt, try for 6 Aurums
15:52:15 <Kevin L™🌵> Indy cars are running 34% faster than the top speed of a Cessna 182 right now.
15:52:36 <ynpvisitor999®> Entry #2 does exist. It was for Plume @ 0920 ie wc on 14 April 2011
15:52:59 <CraigC> ynpvisitor999®, who entered it
15:53:09 <ynpvisitor85> CraigC, 😊
15:53:18 <ynpvisitor999®> Jake entered it
15:53:33 <ynpvisitor85> Well get OF out of the way
15:57:46 <LindaGp> OF
16:01:58 <CraigC> wonder if the boardwalk will be opened up by Memorial weekend
16:02:23 <CraigC> Jarno, do you have odds?
16:02:46 <ynpvisitor999®> not for boardwalk construction unfortunately
16:02:51 <CraigC> :)
16:03:03 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie
16:03:26 <Kevin L™🌵> I am surprised it isn't done. Like they just stopped.
16:03:38 <CraigC> steve entered a 15 foot burst at Solitary
16:03:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow!
16:04:07 <ynpvisitor999®> must've been a fun one
16:04:31 <CraigC> I have to shamefully admit I have never gone to Solitary
16:05:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice walk. It was a bit tough for me the last time I went but you should be OK.
16:05:36 <LindaGp> I think we could see Aurum and daisy if they go
16:05:53 <CraigC> LindaGp, looks like it
16:08:43 <LindaGp> Daisy and riverside due
16:10:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Rocket?
16:11:53 <LindaGp> Think so?
16:11:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks higher than Grotto.
16:12:09 <ynpvisitor6> Everyone ready for tonight’s steamboat?
16:12:42 <LindaGp> Sprinkler
16:12:50 <LindaGp> 😁
16:13:26 <LindaGp> Thats cheating
16:14:03 <CraigC> it's not a contest... just make your #1000 a good one
16:14:32 <LindaGp> Giantess?
16:14:58 <ynpvisitor6> Steamboat loves to erupt on poker night
16:15:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Marmot Cave?
16:15:26 <LindaGp> Had it Friday splashing good
16:25:57 <LindaGp> Daisy
16:34:11 <LindaGp> BA
16:48:54 <LindaGp> Riverside
16:55:39 <LindaGp> Marmot cave
16:56:40 <LindaGp> Wow marmot splashing!!
17:01:33 <ynpvisitor999®> YAY! We just won the Eurovision song festival. After 44 years!
17:01:54 <LindaGp> Congrats!
17:02:27 <Betty> congrats, Jarno. WHoohoo :-D
17:02:46 <LindaGp> Who is we?
17:02:55 <ynpvisitor999®> We, as in The Netherlands
17:03:19 <LindaGp> Ok thats what i thought
17:03:25 <Cooper1> nice
17:04:20 <ynpvisitor17> so it will be hosted next time in your country, right?
17:04:35 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
17:06:15 <ynpvisitor17> you should make plans to go to it :)
17:07:24 <ynpvisitor999®> not sure if I'll go, as I'm not that event-fancy. Though if the opportunity arises
17:10:57 <CraigC> LindaGp, congrats on 1000
17:11:35 <LindaGt> CraigC, thx it was marmot!
17:12:59 <LindaGt> It was splashing again
17:24:57 <LindaGp> Bulger
17:25:23 <LindaGp> Old tardy
17:26:36 <CraigC> I wish Sawmill would awaken
17:33:13 <LindaGp> 7:32 no grand
17:35:24 <LindaGp> Of
17:39:22 <LindaGp> Grand
17:40:11 <LindaGp> Most for grand could be 4 minutes
17:40:31 <CraigC> LindaGp, you didnt enter Bulger
17:41:04 <CraigC> I wasnt sure OT was erupting, did you see water
17:41:18 <LindaGp> I know i will cookINg dinner, jUggling OF AND GRAND 😁
17:41:36 <CraigC> uh oh, don;t burn dinner
17:43:33 <LindaGp> 😊
17:45:26 <LindaGp> No OT
17:46:00 <LindaGp> 7:45 pause
17:46:18 <LindaGp> 2nd
17:47:19 <ynpvisitor999®> so we're on b2 already at just 8 minutes in?
17:48:01 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, caught ie
17:48:06 <ynpvisitor999®> :(
17:49:06 <LindaGp> I think it paused, did u see It?
17:49:43 <ynpvisitor999®> no, I switched back into the tab after 1745
17:52:10 <CraigC> Artemisia
17:53:34 <CraigC> Arty got entered in-basin
17:54:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Well we know for sure now!
17:56:31 <CraigC> can we pan to Daisy
17:56:58 <CraigC> nope, castle steam
17:57:35 <CraigC> too early for daisy, anyways
17:57:56 <CraigC> bison
17:58:46 <CraigC> I haven;t heard of any sighting of the griz and cub around OF area since we saw it on cam
17:59:32 <CraigC> I saw a griz with a smaller one, maybe a 2 year old, down by Biscuit
18:00:30 <Kevin L™🌵> I would rather have a Bison for supper than a griz.
18:00:45 <CraigC> :)
18:01:38 <CraigC> never had bear, but I had bison at Maddox once and it didn't do much for me
18:01:49 <LindaGp> Sauteed?
18:02:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Not much for wild game although deer makes the best jerky
18:02:44 <CraigC> only game I liked was some elk
18:03:26 <LindaGp> Marmot splashes
18:03:49 <CraigC> saw that one
18:03:56 <LindaGp> Yea
18:04:36 <CraigC> another
18:05:26 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, marmot was #1000
18:06:02 <LindaGp> Big one
18:06:21 <CraigC> wonder if NG has slowed way down, or we just have bad luck cathcing it
18:06:42 <ynpvisitor999®> may actually be both
18:06:47 <LindaGp> Haven't seen it for quite awhile
18:06:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Hey, I called that one!
18:06:56 <CraigC> been 13 days since one was logged
18:07:39 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, yup, went over to look and it was splashing
18:08:26 <CraigC> no Aurums logged on cam today
18:08:50 <Kevin L™🌵> That means it is due
18:09:11 <LindaGp> 🤞
18:11:36 <LindaGp> Kat made it to yellowstone!
18:11:49 <LindaGp> But she can't get on chat. Lol
18:12:12 <CraigC> is this Aurum?https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/05182019/532.jpg
18:12:15 <CraigC> https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/05182019/532.jpg
18:12:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like it could be
18:12:52 <Cooper> maybe
18:13:09 <CraigC> if only could be or maybe, wont enter
18:14:08 <Kevin L™🌵> I would put it in as a questionable. May not hurt to attach the photo.
18:14:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Artemisia now erupts in series?
18:14:56 <Cooper> There is an in basin entry at 0917, so it could not have been arum, at least most likely
18:15:30 <CraigC> Cooper, why not?
18:15:54 <CraigC> I thought Aurum was 4 to 5 hours interval
18:16:10 <Kevin L™🌵> I have seen those intervals in the Spring.
18:16:22 <Cooper> never mind, confused geysers in my head, was watching an old video of another geyser
18:16:25 <Cooper> sry
18:16:25 <CraigC> nothing showing on static in last couple of hours
18:16:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Mor like a 4 to 34 hour interval.
18:16:43 <CraigC> Cooper, no worries, I am learning
18:16:47 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm giving a plausible for Aurum
18:17:23 <LindaGp> What's the latest on steamboat? Due soon?
18:17:26 <CraigC> last aurum, I watched where it showed on static, and that is where I saw it
18:17:33 <ynpvisitor999®> 0917 Aurum (https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/05182019/365.jpg) roughly appears in the position of 1209 Aurum (static is 5 minutes fast)
18:17:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Had a 4h42m interval on the 12th
18:17:47 <ynpvisitor17> Steamboat just approaching 5 days
18:18:27 <CraigC> ynpvisitor999®, thanks
18:18:27 <Cooper> so it would be aurum
18:19:37 <Kevin L™🌵> I would post it as at least a questionable.
18:20:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am well fede
18:20:45 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, just did
18:20:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Hate have a gazer that isn't well fede.
18:21:37 <CraigC> so did Jarno
18:21:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> did i miss anything?
18:21:45 <ynpvisitor999®> sorry for going too fast, Craig
18:22:21 <CraigC> no, I deleted mine, yours has better description
18:22:42 <ynpvisitor999®> well, if you say so :)
18:22:57 <LindaGp> I guess steamboat is here
18:23:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks Linda
18:23:23 <LindaGp> Yw
18:23:24 <ynpvisitor999®> you tricked me into looking at YNM, Linda...
18:23:31 <ynpvisitor17> ? here?
18:23:49 <LindaGp> GO STEAMBOAT, Kat is in Yellowstone, was wondering about steamboat, I said I'd ask.
18:23:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> i guess we are in the SB window ...nobody left yet?
18:24:48 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor999®, oh sorry, meant go steamboat lol
18:25:01 <CraigC> ynpvisitor999®, I now understand your comment about Artemisia in series....LOL
18:25:14 <ynpvisitor999®> Spa 1822... Also erupts in series now I guess :P
18:25:22 <CraigC> LOL
18:25:30 <Kevin L™🌵> I haven't heard anything about SB today
18:25:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> well nobody posted a status which likely means all the posters are still there
18:25:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> it is probably in its window now
18:25:59 <LindaGp> Kat is wondering when to go there
18:26:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> reent intervals would have it erupt overnight
18:26:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> so early tomorrow if it hasnt gone
18:26:29 <Kevin L™🌵> The figure out when Dave is going doesn't work anymore.
18:26:43 <CraigC> I would go there right now if I was in the park, stay until uncomfortable
18:27:25 <CraigC> twilight spring is steaming a lot again
18:27:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> its still statistically early but the reports made it sound like it was ready yesterday
18:27:51 <ynpvisitor999®> where's Twilight roughly on this view, Craig?
18:28:00 <CraigC> left of spasmodic
18:28:26 <CraigC> in line with old tardy but this side of boardwalk
18:28:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> this side of the BW lining up with OT
18:28:43 <CraigC> or what graham said
18:28:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> what he said
18:28:51 <CraigC> :)
18:29:34 <CraigC> it isnt steaming as much as when I posted it
18:29:44 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, there... I was looking at this side of the boardwalk going from Sawmill to Lion
18:30:04 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks :)
18:30:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> 1003 Linda ... yeah party time
18:30:52 <CraigC> I dont know anything about it, so I asked Graham about what I saw the other night,a nd showed him the GOSA capture
18:31:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> iy tises and falls with Spasmo and the group. doesnt erupt ... at least rarely
18:31:48 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
18:32:33 <ynpvisitor999®> Geysers of Yellowstone says it can burst 2-5 feet during deep drains
18:32:47 <LindaGt> GO STEAMBOAT, yay 1000 was marmot splashing. That one is my favorite, love the name
18:32:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> an artemisia initial. nice
18:33:13 <ynpvisitor999®> but as deep drains haven't occurred (or at least not that I know of recently), it's unlikely for Twilight to have an eruption
18:33:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah nice. sorry little cub lost out to a marmot
18:33:53 <LindaGt> 😊
18:35:37 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
18:35:42 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
18:35:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Night
18:36:03 <LindaGt> Night betty
18:36:17 <CraigC> cya Betty
18:36:39 <ynpvisitor999®> hm, didn't know that steam to the left of the Sawmill trees comes from Calida Pool
18:38:46 <CraigC> from Janet Jones; Spasmodic now has nearly constant overflow, creating new overflow channels that support a lush growth of microbes. Also consistently overflowing have been Churn Geyser, Tardy Geyser, and Twilight Spring.
18:39:10 <CraigC> this part preceded it; THEN IT CHANGED However, in early 2017, something changed (as is the norm in Yellowstone geysers and hot springs). There seemed to be a pause and neither mode was seen. Instead, Spasmodic Geyser took over the group’s energy.
18:40:22 <LindaGt> How do you know if it's an arty ini?
18:40:51 <CraigC> LindaGt, I think they erred in entering "ini"
18:40:54 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm not all too familiar with the Sawmill complex, but it almost sounds like the complex is trying to switch to Penta-Churn mode
18:41:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Look under its t shirt
18:41:07 <LindaGt> Ah
18:41:14 <LindaGt> Kevin L™🌵, haha
18:42:45 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
18:42:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> Jarno - I dont believe there has been much change in the complex. Nifty was perpwetual last year but dormant this winter - and thats a geyser that barely erupts inches
18:43:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> nothing much else has changed.
18:44:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> if we get a deep drain or Sawmill erupts that woudl indicate the group has changed
18:44:59 <LindaGt> CraigC, oh and I didnt burn dinner but it was close 😏
18:45:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Penta erupting would also indicate change in the complex
18:45:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> well yes, but thats the least likely change to see
18:47:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> i expect we will see Sawmill or a deep drain first ... but who knows. Churn is more likely to show up than Penta
18:48:53 <LindaGt> Lions tryin
18:51:25 <CraigC> off to dinner... later folks
18:51:37 <ynpvisitor999®> cya Craig, enjoy dinner
18:51:38 <LindaGt> Bye
18:52:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> a Spa initial too
18:59:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Link minor, doming 3-4 feet
19:09:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> of
19:36:24 <LindaGt> Tourists vs. Bison
19:44:57 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Have fun watching an invisible cone splashing
19:45:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> goodnight
19:56:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> GT didnt post a new OF prediction
19:57:25 <Kevin L™🌵> 2046
19:58:57 <ynpvisitor19> 5 days Go SB
19:59:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> primetime after midnight
20:00:24 <ynpvisitor19> I will be sleeping
20:15:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> the darkness comes too late for me this time of year ... cam on night view ...... enjoy
20:17:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Night
20:17:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Looked like a hockey game at the end of the race tonight.
